With all due respect, Blizz could just as easily reduce the payout on those quests too. That's how the Fed works, raising and lowering interest rates to (theoretically) keep the economy steady. Blizz would probably be better off adjusting the quest pay outs because raising mount prices and such would cause a ruckus amongst the players, many of who, feel the prices are too high already.

yeah, but the fed has to deal with fickle, short termed, self interested institutional investors who can destroy massive amounts of value just because they don't like the decisions being made.Besides, there are easier ways to control the rate that money goes into the system- I'll bet that tons more gold enters the economy as a few coins picked off a mob than through quest rewards.

"Blizz would probably be better off adjusting the quest pay outs because raising mount prices and such would cause a ruckus amongst the players, many of who, feel the prices are too high already."Like they did from BC? They knew people would complain about 5k gold for a mount. Did it stop them? That's a SERIOUS increase.. from 600g (actually, wasnt it more like 8 or 900g?) mounts to... 6.3k (reg mount PLUS epic)But see, how they went about it was giving the regular "crappy" flight mounts for 1k. If you wanted the best... well... pay the freakin piper and be broke. ERGO... dumping that money out of the economy completely.they'll do it again.

Well Infection, they didn't have daily quests at that time either. It wouldn't make sense to NOT charge a little more for the next superior version of whatever, but now they have other options available to them as well.
